British Fashion Awards

We could totally say that London is on fire, between the British Fashion Awards, the Victoria´s Secret Fashion Show tomorrow, and other events, the spotlight is definitely there. As what concerns us now, the BFA´s took place tonight. The British Fashion council awards the most outstanding designers, models and personalities that contribute to the business. In general, for the fashion world, this event is of great significance the U.K. creates the perfect fusion between the old and the new, this means that well known designers and eponymous brands started there, but right now the labels from the future are being brought up by the new generation of British designers, Same happens with models and fashion enthusiasts that happen to be British or at least live in the country. I believe that the reason for this popularity has to be with the culture that has managed to maintain the antique British heritage while embracing the modernism brought by the technological era of today.

Lets start with the red carpet highlights. Models opted for monochromatic outfits this year, but nor necessarily boring. In order of appearance we have  Poppy Delevingne in Topshop, Joan Smalls in Tom Ford, Kendall Jenner in Emilio Pucci, Cara Delevingne in Burberry, Alexa Chung in Emilia Wickstead, Karlie Kloss, Suki Waterhouse in Burberry, Olivia Palermo, Lily Donaldson and blogger Chiara Ferragni in Peter Pilotto.





Supermodels Noami Campbell, Kate Moss in Alexand McQueen, Eva Hezigova and Mario Testino, and the one and only Twiggy!



Singer Rihanna wore "something" from Stella McCartney, Tom Ford and Rita Ora in Julien Mcdonald, Kylie Minogue, Emma Watson, Harry Styles in Lanvin and David and Victoria Beckham in a design by her.


 Designers Simone Rocha, Alice Temperley, and last but not least, Vogue editors Anna Wintour and Alexandra Shulman.

   Emma Watson
This award was previously won by Alexa Chung several times and Harry Styles last year but they had no nomination this year. The reason is because the former lacks of space to put her award, and the later for saying he only owns two pairs of jeans. (I just wanted to finish with sth funny)

That´s all for now, who do you think was the best dressed? Cara? Karlie? Let me know in the comments.
